The Admiral de Saumarez Trust is a charitable organisation and Guernsey's first Corporate and Social Responsibility Trust. It aims to organise, coordinate and combine resources to support community and island wide regeneration projects.

About us

In adopting the Admiral’s name for the Trust we are recognising not only his importance as the most illustrious representative of Guernsey’s maritime history but his philanthropic legacy which remains evident today in the form of St James, Elizabeth College restoration, Guernsey Savings Bank (now Lloyds Bank) and many more charitable and public spirited enterprises both on and off the island.

By operating in a collective manner the Trust aims to create and deliver benefits which individuals and business organisations may be unable to achieve on their own.

In uncertain times there is a need to draw strength from the past, to be bold, to promote regeneration ventures and look to the future
